News from Access 2 Success
February kicks off our Hoops for Hope Campaign where we collect shoes for kids who attend our summer programs. Catch us at the Davidson College Men’s Basketball game on February 19! Bring your new or like-new shoes to give to our kids in Nigeria, or consider helping us ship shoes to Nigeria by donating at the event or using this link to make a gift.
What’s new at A2S:
At Access to Success (A2S), our team in Nigeria is getting prepared to make the transition to our Youth Center later this year. Our Nigerian team’s January staff retreat kicked off the year with in-depth conversations about developing the right mindset and a positive work environment. As the team plans to grow over the next year, we’re setting goals and putting policies in place to ensure the best transition for our kids and community in Benin City.
This past month we also held our first A2S Coaches’ Clinic of the year. This is our newest effort to prepare our coaches for working with our summer campers to develop their skills at our annual Basketball and Empowerment camp. Each of our coaches also leads their own team year-round, so they’ve already started applying the skills and drills they learned this session with their individual teams!
